About

Bio

I am a Pediatrician who started my career as a nurse. I have been involved in the care of both sick and well children over the last 30 years. I have special knowledge of children with respiratory conditions such as asthma and Cystic Fibrosis and have a special interest in children with chronic and rare diseases I love to involve families and patients in their care and think that the health care system is currently very complex and confusing to families. It is important that physicians speak clearly and make sure that people understand what their medical needs are and what possible options are for care. I think that the doctor/patient relationship is one of negotiation and understanding and that patients have rights to make sure they are receiving the best care possible. My special interests include health literacy, medical education, telemedicine and communication

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
